RANT: The Great Gatsby–Seriously?

So, I’m in the bookstore and I see this. I’m not gonna do a review of this book, because I read it in high school and it didn’t particularly interest me, but how can they make such a pig’s ear of the cover art? Gatsby was the novel which practically INVENTED cover art–which I learned from this amazing post–not to mention its cover is one of the most iconic ever.
Tell me what you think-am I just being a crazy old man on this one or is this new cover the travesty I think it is?
